HOT Bucket List: Watch a sunset in Santorini

Santorini is picture postcard Greece – white washed villages, windmills and sky-blue dome roofed churches dotted throughout, are carved into steep volcanic cliff faces which cascade into the Aegean Sea.

4 reasons to put this experience on your Bucket List:
HOT Bucket icon Santorini boasts one of the most photographed sunsets in the world.
HOT Bucket icon It is one of the most breath-taking and memorable sunsets you’ll ever see and is consistently named the most beautiful in the world
HOT Bucket icon Vivid pinks and oranges make the cliffs and buildings look like they’re on fire, as the sun sinks into the blue Aegean Sea
HOT Bucket icon Instagram bragging rights

Here are our picks of where to watch it:
Oia - The most popular sunset spot is in Oia, either by the castle ruins, or the windmill. Get there early as it gets very busy. Even though you will jostle for elbow room a hush magically descends on the crowd as the sun sinks into the horizon. 

Imerovigli – Much less busy than Oia, although we don’t know why, as you have a beautiful view out over the ocean and watch the sun descend behind the small island of Thirassa.

Fira – or rather the donkey path from the port up to Fira – the donkeys used to transport everything from the port to Fira, nowdays they just carry tourists. You can sit along this path to watch Fira turn golden before the sun disappears into the sea.

PK Cocktail Bar – book a table on the terrace at our favourite cocktail bar. Watch the sunset with a delicious cocktail or one of their special champagne sunset experiences. The view, the setting, the drinks and the team is why we like it here.

From the sea – there are many sunset cruises that explore the coast and beaches of the island, you swim and snorkel in the clear waters, soak in the hot springs and satiate yourself with a delicious Greek BBQ including drinks before your final stop, just below the clifftop village of Oia, where you watch the unforgettable sunset with drink in hand, and no crowds. 

We like the luxury catamaran, prices from $275 per person.  

From the balcony or terrace of your accommodation - make this bucket list experience really special and stay at one of the Canaves Oia luxury properties. Canaves Oia began in 1985 when the Chaidemenos family transformed 17th century caves, once used to store wine, into all-white minimalistic luxury hotel rooms. Their portfolio has grown from 2 caves to several suites and villas across 5 properties, 2 of which opened this year. It is now run by the sons of the family and the theme has remained the same; to deliver unrivalled luxury experiences to guests.  
We have chosen: 
4 days/3 nights in a Deluxe Suite with a Caldera View at Canaves Oia Sunday Suites
From $2309 per person
